GraceKennedy presents: Coconut water

Coo-coo for coconut water!
Second only to water, coconut water is the purest liquid.  The nectar, which continues to grow in popularity has become a favourite sports drink for recovery and an electrolyte replacement for Canadians.  Many consider coconut water to be the fastest growing juice as an alternative sports nutrition product. Coconut water, tapped from young coconuts before the flesh matures, seems to be the beverage of choice for sports athletes and health nuts.  2009 marked the turning point for coconut water as its popularity reached an all-time high.  Coconut water has 15-times the electrolytes found in most sports drinks. And it's a natural food, not a manmade product like a sports drink. Most sports drinks have a lot of added sugars like high fructose corn syrup, preservatives and artificial coloring. But plain coconut water contains naturally occurring sugar and minimal ingredients. It's also much lower in calories.
The benefits of the island fruit are many, including: -Excellent source of potassium; -Low in sodium; -Free of gluten; -Fat free; -Five essential electrolytes (potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium and phosphorus); and -Supports rapid hydration. “Coconut water is the very best of what Mother Nature has to offer.  It has been a staple drink for tropical regions around the world for centuries,” said Lucky Lankage, President of GraceKennedy (Ontario) Inc. Available in 330 ml cans.  Unlike the white coconut juice consumers have come to know, Grace Coconut Water is clear and contains white pulp. Coconut Waters is the official drink for Rugby Canada and is available at your local grocery and ethnic stores.
